IWC: Portuguese Grande Complications/2010
The Grande Complication now makes its debut in the red gold Portuguese. With more room inside the 45 millimetres case, and water resistant to 3 bar for the first time, the beautiful sound from its minute repeating mechanism nevertheless remains unchanged.
A discreetly engraved globe and gold appliqués decorate the silver-plated dial. True to the tradition of the Grande Complication, a limited edition of fifty watches per year is retained. A new engraving on the case back depicts a sextant and makes the affiliation with the Portuguese family obvious.
